Archer IQT Progress

Post by Zeus » Wed Jul 03, 2019 1:32 am

Cadet/IP: Archer/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 30 Jun 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Please join me welcoming Archer to the IQT program. Archer had a great IQT-1 flight departing from Kadena, executing various formations and tac turns along the way. We even hit the tanker and grabbed some gas before heading to Kunsan for the OHB. Archer has a really good handle on the jet and will be a great addition to our Wing. Welcome Archer!

Thanks Zeus, I really enjoyed that flight.

Looking at the 3rd picture, it doesn't even looks like my hands were shaking so badly xD; even though this was a "simple" no-combat sortie, it felt much more intense - and fun - than most combat casual flights I've done in the past.

Really looking forward to the next IQT!

Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 3 Jul 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: And it looks like we have a ringer here...Archer aced his IQT-2 flight with 100% missile hits taking out everything he shot at. Not to mention really getting the hang of tac turns, tactics, proper combat brevity and a pesky MiG-29 that just would not go down. This IQT should go quick!

Ready to go (looking at this pic can anyone tell what event has already happened?)

Check Ride #: IQT-3

Score: Pass

Debrief: Another great flight with Archer, this time taking the fight visual in some good ol' dogfights! HE did a great job getting all 3 kills with great comms and SA especially during the last engagement when the bandit was trying to drag us into an SA-10 ring. Finished off with a TRP into Yechon.

Nice formation take-off

Thank you!
This mad dash has been extremely fun, it's kind of sad in a way that there's only 2 more to go xD
